On behalf of the Victorian branch of the Australasian Plant Pathology Society (APPS), we invite you to participate in our 22nd Biennial Conference to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) in Melbourne, Australia from 25 – 28th November 2019.

This conference will be the climax of the APPS 50th birthday celebrations, where we celebrate our “Strong foundations and highlight the latest advances in plant pathology that will lead to “Future Innovations”.

Excellent scientific presentations by local and international speakers will be the backbone of our meeting, supported by engaging field tours and workshops allowing conference participants to experience plant pathology up close and to visit key agricultural sites in the areas surrounding Melbourne.

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues and mentoring of students at our social functions, and our 50th birthday conference dinner. The city of Melbourne has much to offer you and accompanying family members, so why not make it a family trip?

We look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne for APPS2019. More than ever ‘Plant health is still earth’s wealth’!
